 Cu+ is not stable and undergoes disproportion. E for cu+ disproportionation.

(E°  cu2+/cu =0.153V , E°  cu+/cu=0.53V).

(a)  +0.683 V

(b)  -0.367 V

(c) +0.3415 V

(d) +0.367 V

Answers : (1)


I want th make a small correction to question

Its cu2+/cu+ =0.153V  i.e.,                     cu2+ + e-   ------>  cu+            E0 = 0.153 V

Now going into problem

Cu+ solutions, tend to give a disproportion reaction:

2Cu+ ----- >   Cu + Cu2+


                     cu+ + e-    ------>  cu                                E0 = 0.53 V        so,  nE0 = 0.53 V    

                     cu+            ------>  cu2+ + e-               E0 = - 0.153 V       so,  n E0 = - 0.153 V 

on adding above rxns we get   

 2Cu+ ----- >   Cu + Cu2+                  with  E0 = +0.377 V   


Option is D
